Breast Cancer Rope of Solidarity Climb

On the 27th of September, 2008, 100 women,  80 of them breast cancer survivors, gathered together in Zermatt, Switzerland to climb the Breithorn mountain for the first Rope of Solidarity climb.

Supported by family and friends, their climb bore witness to the fact that while cancer is an arduous and uphill struggle, it can be  overcome with the support of others. The rope of solidarity united these breast cancer survivors and their loved ones who also were touched by their illness.

This year on the 17-18 of September, the Zonta Club Morges La Côte will organise the second Rope of Solidarity in Zermatt and they would like to invite an Irish participant to take part. So if you have been affected by breast cancer and would like to take up this challenge, then contact me directly at and I will forward your name to the organisers.
